Or, "The Day they Wheeled Test Tubes and Various Chemicals into an Electronics Lab"
The famous Knight Lab at MIT/CSAIL. Even if you aren't into the notion of engineering systems out of biological substances, you might enjoy the video tour of this MIT lab. I happened to be visiting back in 1998 (or thereabouts) when his EECS lab was quietly but quickly being transformed into a biotech hack-zone. I was checking out a tiled projector system when, in the background, I could hear a cart loaded with test tubes rolling by. (For you non-engineers, that's like dining at a quiet French restaurant and being interrupted by a battalion of Brazilian BBQ servers presenting meat on swords. The two just don't co-exist.)

Google Keeps Track of Scholarly Works
Yeah, you knew this already, but it's fun: www.google.com/scholar. (Say, Prof. B., you are oft-cited!)
Yikes, I just polished off an entire box of "Nerds" (the box says "View in 3-D", with the little cartoon Nerds wearing anaglyph 3-D glasses???) and half a bag of Haribo Raspberries. I fear I'll see 3am.
Wish me luck.
